Seriouly, a gorgeous copper pour in a trappist at the Weber Grill in Schaumburg. Hi-ABV evident, but nose and palate are unassuming... To light. Not there.

Nice aroma of some candied fruits. Golden color with a frothy head. Nice sweetness up front. Complex flavors of citrus, plum, and spices. Bitterness is even and cuts sweetness nicely. Smooth finish. Outstanding.

On tap at the source. Looking forward to the new brewpub space, btw ... Currently, with a band is tough in the building, and the patio works about 20% of the time in Illinois -- we froze on July 2nd, for heavens sakes. Orange pour. Aroma has sweet fruits, lemon, tangy. Taste is strong, somewhat alcoholly, fruit, lemon. Tangy yeast. Decent. A touch strong 13 6

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Bigby’s Pour House in Addison, IL., displaying a lightly hazed, deep golden color, with a modest layer of white froth to the head, and lacing that was as bubbly & wavy spray. The nose began with slight yeast attributes of banana & spice, then esters as apricot & citrus, as orange. A modest, but pleasant alcohol presence introduced the taste, followed by a moderate & lingering hop bitterness that was earthy, and slightly rind-like. Light to medium bodied, with decent carbonation, followed by a bit of tanginess, and lingering sweetness that made me question attenuation, and a lack of finishing dryness that always peaks my enjoyment of this style of Belgian Strong Ale. Fairly tasty, nonetheless.

Draft. Golden pour. Clean and crisp tripel, lots of grain flavor, some mild hops poke through, not a game changer but pleasant.

Spicy hops overwhelm the nostrils. White fluffy head sits on a golden body. Good carbonation. Despite the high alcohol content it is very easy to drink. Not so much of a yeasty presence I would expect from a belgian style triple.
